And it Just Keeps Getting Better

So this week is off to a GREAT start (insert sarcasm here) We had noticed that our cat was not doing to too well these past couple of days so I decided last night that I would take him to the 24 hour vet to see what was up. Not more than 5 min after I walked in the door, he went into cardiac arrest and died. I was in shock! I mean I thought he was sick, but I didn't think he was going to die. So within one hour, I lost a cat, made arrangements for his cremation, and signed over $300 to the vet. Lets just say I had a very emotional night :( It just all happened so fast that I really don't think it hit me till the car ride home. Jon felt bad too that I had to do this by myself, but he didn't know he was going to die either. Just funny how life works you know. So this one is for Poe-our beloved best friend for 8 years :)

When did my child bypass the age of 4 and start being 13?? She has the attitude of a teenager! Please tell me this will pass and that the cute, sweet, innocent child I gave birth to is locked up somewhere and will come out :)

Can you tell I am still having issues??? I did get my voice back though which I am not too sure the hubby is thrilled about :)

Going Mental

I am having issues this week and I hate for you guys to have to read about them so I am lagging on posting. Just to sum it up- I am still sick, I have no voice, my kid has an attitude problem, and I have a friend who has become a bit of a stalker (good thing to post about, but I have to make sure she knows nothing about this blog) So there you have it. I promise to be back to my nice self soon- just bear with me :)

I'm in Love

Is it okay to be in love with my cleaning lady?? I want to kiss her feet and praise her all day long! My house is so clean and it smells like flowers! But now that it is clean I have turned in to the wicked witch of cleaning and actually get on my hands and knees to pick up crumbs. Will I ever be satisfied??

So Spoiled

Today I am having someone come and clean my house. Yes, I know, a stay at home mom with only one child who goes to school 3 times a week should have plenty of time to keep her house clean, but I really suck at it. Ever since I've been pregnant I have no desire to clean up anything. The real kicker was when my Mother-in-law came over and told my husband that I looked tired and that I might need some help with the house (hmm...I didn't really think it was that bad) So this is actually hubby's idea and if he is willing to pay then I am not going to complain. I am a little nervous though. Maybe it is because the master bathroom is really bad and I am embarrassed?? No clue. Anyway, I look forward to clean house and I guess walking around Target for 3 hours since I really have nothing to do while she is here :)

There is Something

Lately I have felt these tiny little jabs in my lower abdomen knowing what they were I was so happy. Well today it was like someone was in there doing teeny tiny little back flips. So now I know for sure there is a baby in there :) Eases the mind a bit and I know that I am not gaining a pound a minute for nothing.

We are also all sick in this house. Why is it that one tiny little 3 year old can get 2 adults so sick that they become kids themselves? I thought my throat was going to close on Saturday and Jon was complaining yesterday of the same thing. Luckily this one is not an ass-kicker, but I would really like to start breathing through my nose :)

I hope everyone had a good weekend. Hopefully if Sick has come to play at your house he is on his way out :)

Rain Here

It is raining here today!! There is actual rain in Southern CA!!! I thought it would never happen! Hope everyone is having a good weekend- I am going outside to play in the puddles :)

The Return of Sick

Well Sick has managed to enter our house somehow. I swear I locked all the doors, washed all the hands, and sprayed Lysol everywhere- but with no luck. Hopefully this time Sick doesn't stay and party too long. The last time I was picking up after Sick for days! Sick did bring a very good friend with him this time, Whine, which I of course missed so much. Julia and Whine have been playing together all day and luckily they are now sound asleep :) Whine did prevent me from getting any food into my child today, but I told Whine to shove it when it came to cold medicine. So here I am, sitting with Sick in hopes that we can negotiate something so that he doesn't touch my husband. Because we all know that this house would be full of Whine and his buddies if that happens :)

My Attempt at Being Martha

Trying to get in the spirit of the season, I bought a package of Tollhouse Halloween Cookie Shapes. I also went to Target and found this sprinkle pack so that Julia and her little boyfriend could decorate cookies. So yesterday I am getting all the stuff ready so that they had their own little cookie stations. I thought I was totally being a creative mom :) Anyway, I opened the package of cookies to bake them and all I found were two sheets of dough. There were no shapes cut into them! I read the package thinking I did something wrong and it looks like they missed my package of cookies completely. And of course with my luck that is the package I happen to pick up at the store. So I just cut the cookies into squares since I am not the type to have actual cookie cutters in the house (I wouldn't have bought the pre-cut package if I did) and they decorated square cookies. It all turned out fine since I forgot the 3 1/2 year olds care less about the cookie part and more about the orange frosting that they ended up eating with a spoon. Let me tell you though- it is hard work being Martha. Maybe I am just not made that way :)

So Not Martha

How many of you decorate for the Halloween? If you do, are you all other holiday decorators too? My friend Robin has all these decorations up already for Halloween- pumpkins, flags, ghosts, you name it. Me- I have a wooden sign that says "The Treats are Here" that I can't even find right now. So sad :( I even went to go and buy stuff to decorate and I ended up with nothing because I could not bring myself to pay money for it all. Don't gt me wrong- I am not a grinch or anything. I just think I am "decorating challenged". Got any cute suggestions that I could do so that my house looks candy friendly?

Recently I had to change doctors because my insurance (that we pay an arm and a leg for) does not deliver at the hospital in my town. How dumb is that? I have to now drive about 25 min. on the freeway to the hospital in other city, in another county. Just sucks when I thought everything was cool and it was not. I did see my new doctor the other day and he is about 32, cute, very on top of things, did I mention cute? Is it okay to flirt with your doctor when your feet are up in the air? (I am soooo kidding) They also changed my due date to a week later (March 23) so that means that my ultrasound will not be till November. I hate waiting! I need to know what is growing inside of me!

Then yesterday I had my first migraine of this pregnancy. I had them really bad with Julia and I thought I was in the clear, but I woke up feeling like my head was going to explode. If you have never had a migraine that is what it feels like. I called the office and they wanted to see me right away. When I got there I was in tears and they were so nice. I got drugs, Jon came home, and I spent the rest of the afternoon in bed. I feel like a new person this morning. I know the warning signs and I should have paid attention to that. Now I know :)

So those are my issues. I actually am full of them, but who wants to hear about that :)

I am Doing What I was Told

My pregnancy book says I should be eating 2-3 snacks. I was wondering though if they meant 2-3 snacks in the morning, 2-3 snacks in afternoon, and 2-3 snacks before bed because if so then I am doing it right. It also said that the snacks should be fruits and vegetables so Dreyer's Real Strawberry ice cream counts- right?

My Lips are Sealed

I've got a secret that I am dying to tell. I may for a slab of BBQ ribs since that is what I am craving lately :)

Okay,Okay- twist my arm. Check it out! I still want ribs though.
